1 [Ovid] Publius Ovidii Nasonis. Herausgegeben von J. Meier Graese (editor). Rudolph Schott, translator to German. Heinrich Wieynck. Andre Lambert, illustrator of vignettes and title decoration Amorum Libri Tres
Marees Gesellschaft, R. Piper & Co. Verlag 1918 First Limited Edition Thus Full Pigskin (Full Leather), with custom slipcase Near Fine 
No. 162 of 200, with one of 150 on hand-made paper of Wiggins, Teape & Co. 240 copies in all were made, including unnumbered copies (212 were numbered in one of two ways). 4to. (27 by 20 cm.) 282, [5] pp. The outstanding aspects of this edition and copy in which Ovid's verse is rendered in both Latin and German translation are magnificent decorative pigskin binding, the flowing type, and the elegant page decoration, which includes a huge variety of cameo images. These images are never repeated exactly, it should also be noted. Resulting is a book of extraordinary beauty, both exterior and interior-wise. Aesthetically the book production is true to the classical in its lines and sensibility while being securely of its own time when a sinuous Art Nouveau or Jugendstil was ripening into a modernist economy, or Art Deco. There are sensuous Rococo details, such as the gilt lines etched into the spine, while one can not but be impressed with the lack of clutter on each and every page! While the type is not a plain Roman or the like, the gentle curvature of the cursive invites and soothes the eye, and every word should be crisply clear to the modern reader. Light soiling and darkening on the spine. Clean and tight within. The slipcase has some wear.
